Now I try to put myself in his shoes and he has always had a problem standing firm in any decision so its hard for him to say no. I don't want to advocate manipulation but asking questions concerning Joseph's dishonesty about polygamy to his first wife and his marriage of other men's wives and marriage of a 14 year old may prove more fruitful than just saying wow polygamy is messed up. That being said, we have built something beautiful and good, have modeled loving responsibility and accountability to our kids, and I am certain I am with the man God chose for me. I also write erotic shorts which I hope help women heal from bad relationship and envision what they really want and create it. I believe that we are all on different paths, but that it is possible for us to travel on different paths side-by-side. Masculine attributes attract healthy, beautiful women, no matter where they come from. Mormonism, like many extreme religions, often stunts the growth of its members.
My Buddhist husband likes Mormons and even going to church. I wouldn't just give up, but be wary. Going back in time, it was never encouraged for people to marry outside their faith and this covered most christian religions in the United States.

Do you know his work hours, break time during work and where does he take break from work. Thanks for the comment. I know a lot of Mormons who were also not raised on fear and guilt and strict gender rolesвbut I was, as were many of my peers.
